A Mother’s Plea

“Makulong sana ang mga hayop na ‘yon,” Susan Nicolas, the mother of the Subic rape victim, said as she vowed to fight for justice and appealed for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s help.

We could only symphatize with Mrs. Nicolas and hope that the self-proclaimed “Ina ng Bayan” and US President Bush’s little drummer girl in Asia would again dare to defy her boss to uphold the interest of a constituent.

We have to admit, however, that it’s very unlikely that Arroyo will act in favor of her fellow Filipina. There’s no love lost between her and the Filipino people, anyway. She received the lowest popularity rating a post-EDSA 1 president ever got. Surveys say as much as 80% percent of Filipinos want her out. Her colonial master’s support is more important for her this time, and she could get that by continuously protecting American interests in her country.
